Customer value has become an important source of competition strength, whether or not to provide customers with higher relative customer value has become an important indicator to measure success. A large number of studies have shown that there is obvious relatively characteristic in the process of customer value perception. In the process of value perception and evaluation, the value customers perceive in the target products is against the value they perceive in the competitive ones, and this value perception is based on the individual perception of customer, and it has significant individual differences. However, many companies ignore the relative characteristic of customer value at the present stage.This article will make a summary and conclusion about the process of value perception of customer self-influence factors based on lots of literature review. Then, it constructs a theoretical research framework based on previous academic research, and this framework describes influence relationship between customer self-influence factors and relative customer value. The framework consists of two kinds of variables and the corresponding relationship, the antecedent variables(self-perception of customer value factors:customer background, motivation, personality preference and purchasing experience), the result variable(relative customer value). It tries to explain the influence means and influence relationship from customer self-influence factors to relative customer value.In this study, it constructs a theoretical research framework based on extensive literature review.
